They can break a window and get in....?

It is no secret that ALL things are possible, however, there are things that are not likely to happen. One is that a thief knows that a property (vehicle) owner will go to great lengths to get into a locked property (vehicle or house) before breaking and destroying a window. It’s like a giant arrow over their head pointing at them and exclaiming “this dude is up to no good”…that will draw attention more than an alarm will now-a-days (which people actually ignore). That being said, if a thief breaks out a window, which they can,

  1. That doesn’t unlock the door,
  2. The window actually breaks in, not out,
  3. The thief would have to climb through the window opening to gain access to the interior. (Do not leave valuables sitting out in the open,no matter what)
  4. They would have to sit in the broken glass (evidence they entered the vehicle),
  5. They cannot open the door from inside (that’s why it’s called the invisible deadbolt) they can’t see or access it from outside/inside the vehicle,
  6. A confused mind always says no….when the door doesn’t open when they by-pass the factory locks, they immediately access “should I stay and fool with something that I have no idea about, or go find an easier target” (it is now becoming too risky to stick around). See the testimonial from a pick up owner who had an attempt to steal his truck and he and the police officer had a chuckle, imagining the look on the thief’s face when he saw the factory latch button pop up and he still couldn’t open the door!

What if the battery goes dead (completely dead)....?

Always a concern when the lights are left on accidentally and the battery drained “completely”. There are different ways to deal with this and probably many that have not been thought of as yet. However, a quick and inexpensive solution is preventative. Run a pair of wires from the battery terminals (12/10ga) and coil it up behind the grill and tie wrap it out of site, so that you know where it is, but no one would think to look for it (doesn’t really matter) In the event of a completely drained battery, pull the wire pair out, skin the ends and attach power (jumpers, but DO NOT ATTEMPT TO JUMP THE BATTERY) this is strictly to put power into the system to operate the module and unlock a door, NOTHING MORE…to pop the hood and attach the jumper cables directly to the battery. I have used the trunk light to connect a charger and put power through the system enough to unlock the doors. Even crawled under a van and put jumpers on the starter solenoid and ground to unlock the doors!

What if a bolt fails.....?

The AutoBolt SS has been upgraded (from motor driven to solenoid actuated) to increase durability, dependability, and longevity. After 2 ½ years of prototyping and testing we discovered that IF an AutoBolt SS where to fail, it is likely to fail in the unlock position due to the magnetic latching of the bolt ( there is no power draw except a ½ second to arm/disarm). Could it fail in the locked position? absolutely, however the ability to have a manual over-ride (emergency release) eliminates that concern altogether. If ALL the AutoBolt SS bolts where to fail at the same time (on your vehicle) , the odds of that happening would be Extremely rare….at best! In the words of Spock…”rather illogical”….
